What Is a Slip and Fall Case?
A “slip and fall” case can come from many kinds of preventable injuries. They are usually referred to as slip and falls because the most common cases come from slipping and falling. However, other situations, such as trip and falls and stumble and falls, are in the same category. Property owners must ensure that their properties are safe. Sometimes they do not even need to be aware of the dangerous condition to still be held responsible for it. Read more.
New Slip and Fall Legislation In RI
On July 15, 2019, the old, “open and obvious doctrine” has been reformed in favor of the injured party. Prior to this change, the injured party was completely unable to recover if they were injured and if the situation was open and obvious. Under the new law, the injured party now has the ability to recover monetary damages even if the hazardous situation was open and obvious. Even though Rhode Island is a comparative negligence state, which means the amount of negligence attributed to the injured party may reduce recovery amounts, it is still good to have the potential for some recovery rather than no chance to recover.
What Should You Do After a Slip and Fall?
After a slip and fall accident, you should make sure that an incident report is filled out. Most businesses have measures in place in case an accident occurs on their property. Next, you should seek medical assistance because common slip and fall injuries, such as a concussion, can get worse over time. Read more.
What If I Slipped and Fell On Commercial Property?
Commercial properties, such as stores, have to make sure that their properties are even safer than other kinds of properties since they are open to the general public. This means that, in some cases, they may be responsible for your injury even if they were not aware that the dangerous condition existed on their property. Read more.
